I recently resolved CD-R recognition problems with the KLH CDR2000. It's absolutely imperative that you utilize CD-Rs bearing the logo "COMPACT DISC DIGITAL AUDIO RECORDABLE". These specific CD-Rs are designed for digital music recording with the KLH CDR2000 and other simular products. I have a Marantz CD20 that has the same CD-R requirement. I purchased a Memorex 50-pack from Best Buy for approximately $20.00 plus tax. The recordings with the Memorex CD-Rs are immpressive for the KLH CDR2000 given the obvious flaws in design. Again, when searching for compatible disc for the KLH CDR2000 look for the words "DIGITAL AUDIO" within the "COMPACT DISC RECORDABLE" logo.

On the front of the CD rom there is a small pin-size hole, carefully put a drawing pin into the hole and it will open the CD drive manually, if it doesn't read disks anymore consider replacing your CD drive
For some reason, the computer isn't able to read the hard drive and Windows isn't being found. If this computer has a floppy disk drive, make sure there's no disk in it. (Some people still use floppies, and the normal setting for systems with floppy drives is to try booting from that drive first. You may have a disk in it that isn't bootable.) Other possible causes are hard drive failure, a virus or other malware program has damaged the drives boot sector, or a motherboard problem. The most likely cause would be the hard drive; as a mechanical device they are more prone to fail than other parts.
The easiest thing to do is to update the firmware on the drive. If that doesn't work, check to see if the drive is getting adequate power, which can be caused by new hardware being installed that is taking up more power than the power box can give. Clean the plugs and ribbon leading to the computer with a quick burst of compressed air. If that still doesn't work, the laser may be mis-alligned, or borken, and is much easier to replace the whole drive. (CD-RW burners are insane cheap with DVD-RW burner drives being out for a long time, and Blu-Ray burners just around the corner)
A few possibilties on this:
1. Check to make sure both the floppy and CD drive do not have any media in it.
2. This is a used computer and its hard drive was erased to protect old info from being seen. If this is true, you will need to get an operating cd disk (ie. windows XP, windows vista, etc) and boot up from that drive. Follow the instructions from there.
3. Hard drive has failed and needs to be replaced.
